Well, well, well, DC loses big time
« on: September 29, 2017, 03:14:59 AM »
Most know that the DC Circuit ruled against the city for it's "good cause" requirement for CCW permit issue. They petitioned for an en banc hearing of the entire court. Given the makeup of the Court we figured, OK, lost cause.
Thursday the Court revealed that not one judge voted to re hear en banc. None.
This means the city has seven days to appeal to SCOTUS or the restriction is gone.
Of course, they will craft a new one overnight that just SLIGHTLY less restrictive and we start all over....but still, nice win.

I’m hoping this will help us in NJ where CCW is absolutely nonexistent

It's still nice to see them made uncomfortable! Maybe they could be cited for contempt or some such thing, should they try to weasel around the ruling.

Illinois tried that and was still slapped down into coming up with a reasonable CCW permit system.

Some legal eagles who have looked into this one said there is no wiggle room - DC will have to comply, which will make them squeal like a pig stuck under the gate. What a beautiful sight that will be...:)
